im a bad person who thinks bad thoughts like ‘ew what is that girl wearing’ and then remember that im supposed to be positive about all things and then think ‘no she can wear what she wants, fuck what other people say damn girl u look fabulous’ and im just a teeny bit hypocritical tbh
I was always taught by my mother, That the first thought that goes through your mind is what you have been conditioned to think. What you think next defines who you are.
In the manga, Levy did not show up next to Gajeel until the end of his fight with the Dark Dragon, just like in the anime.
Now stop bitching about the animators fucking up the scene.
Okay, first off- people are allowed to critique media.
Second, in the manga there are brief scenes shown of Levy staying with Gajeel to fight. The biggest proof of that is her saying, “We did it, Gajeel!”
In the anime, she says “You did it, Gajeel!”
Huge, huge difference between we and you- that difference being self explanatory.
Also: in the manga cap, Levy is clearly scraped up from battle, in the anime cap, there’s not a hair out of place because she didn’t get to fight.
The past handful of episodes totally shot Levy’s role in this fight. In the anime, Gajeel declines her offer of help and sends her off with the flimsy excuse of helping the townspeople and she doesn’t question it.
The last three episodes featured her saying only one word repeatedly.
This anime went so far as to throw it in our faces to show her team in mortal danger, followed by a scene of her just looking out into the destruction and saying Gajeel’s name. Droy died for god’s sake.
Levy is a fighter.
Levy is part of a team.
Levy is not a supporting character to any man.
The anime took all that away from her because they either blatantly disregarded Mashima’s intention for this scene or interpreted it into the shoddiest scene ever.
Erza still gets to still be in the fight despite being heavily wounded and having to rely on Jellal for literal support to even stand. He doesn’t go set her down off to the sidelines.
Lucy is the driving force behind this entire arc and really showed her capabilities and strength (I mean, who of us can say we could watch ourselves die and still continue to fight?). Natsu could have said, “Nah, I got this. You need to catch your breath.”
Wendy puts Zirconis in his place multiple times and Laxus doesn’t tell her to beat it because she’s smaller or because she’s a healer- it would have been easy for anyone to tell her to go help the citizens, but no, they realized her importance in battle.
I didn’t see Elfman telling Mirajane or Lisanna he didn’t need their help. Or Ever, for that matter.
Just when we’re given the scene of Levy going back and there’s the slim hope she’s going to come in just in time to kick some ass, the dragon’s already gone.
Leaving her to smile and tell Gajeel he did it.
Mashima has gone out of his way to give us strong leading ladies and men that don’t care that they’re women or small or whatthehellever and recognize their strength and skill in battle. Levy may not be dragon slayer, but she has the power of words. There is so much untapped potential in that and probably one of the most dangerous magics in the FT universe aside from Wendy, who can control air.
But all she got were worried looks and concern for only one man out of her entire family.
I feel kinda silly for putting so much work into something that probably kinda missed the theme urggghh.
Patterns has 3 colours + the base colour which is kinda a dark blue. (Also added a transparent version)
Since tumblr fucked up the picture: The original file is a 5000x5000 png with around 700dpi. That means I can provide a not-fucked up version?
Included a bit smaller version as a preview!
Even if it doesn’t get chosen, it’d probably look cute on a pillow case, I think. (Merch-idea, nudge nudge. )
i’m joining the yuriy x mavis shippers. (is the ship name yuvis or smth)
these two are adorable dorks.
and if that theory about zeira not being alive is true, it was nice he didn’t just point it out immediately i suppose
though he nearly did
